Before we left on vacation, I glanced at my garden and I didn't think I had any zucchini. Boy, was I wrong. I now have three of this size. (I didn't even plan to plant zuccini. I was walking at the Botanic Garden one day, and they were giving away seeds, so I said, "Sure, I'll take one." One. Sigh.)
We have several of these flying-saucer shaped yellow squash on two plants. I already sauted one for dinner the other night and gave one to my neighbor.
And I have six tomato vines, all heavily laden like this . . . and Michael hardly eats any tomatoes. What was I thinking?
Not to mention that I have beets and carrots ready to eat. And my green beans, which I planted late on purpose, are now setting blossoms.
I feel as though this is some sort of object lesson that God can provide abundance when we are just looking to get by.
At any rate, we're going to be eating healthfully and spending a lot less on food for the next month or so.
